Athena is the goddess of wisdom, handicraft, and practical reason. She is the divine form of the heroic and martial ideal envied by the mortals. Her triumphs are caused by the possession of the Holy Shield, Aegis, which she wears when she engages in warfare. The Aegis is embedded with the Gorgon Medusa's head which is said to provide omnidirectional protection via the snake heads while at the same time, strikes freezing fear via the gorgon's eyes. The organization of Athena's Aegis plans to acquire the mythical shield, exploring any ruins that may contain clues of its whereabouts. They believe that its holy power is the answer to the Vrykos infestation.
